Macarthur Minerals Executive Chairman Cameron McCall commented: "The Company is extremely pleased with its successful listing on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) and the positive market response in the first two days of trading.  Macarthur's dual listing on the ASX and the TSX-V will provide the Company with increased opportunities in the pre-development stage of its flagship Moonshine Magnetite Project.
